The heart and soul of Champagne Dauby goes back to the meeting of Thérèse et Guy Dauby who shared a common love for the land and for wine.
They had inherited a few plots of vines from their parents and little by little, and not without a back-breaking amount of work, they gradually
put together a small estate on some of the best hillsides in and around the villages of Aÿ and Mutigny. In 1956 the real adventure began: they
purchased a few small oak barrels and made the first few bottles of champagne under their own name :
Champagne DAUBY was born!
Guy and Thérèse shared the same philosophy; both cared passionately for their land and the riches it provided and both were committed, not
simply to cultivating the land, but to preserving it together with all the flowers and animals that depended on its well-being. The same
philosophy has been handed down to us and today, as Mother&Daughter, we still work in harmony with Nature to create elegant, floral champagnes
that reflect the land they come from. The poppy symbolises this commitment.
We have the great good fortune to be located in the historical home of the Great Champagnes: the village of Aÿ-Champagne classified as Grand Cru 100%.
Most of our vineyards are planted with Pinot Noir, we also grow some Chardonnay. They cover 8 hectares (20 acres) spread across different villages :
one of which, Aÿ, is a Grand Cru, whilst 3 more are Premiers Crus. Independent Winemaker, we can control every step of the wine-making from planting
the vines to the harvest and we can guarantee exactly where each of our wines comes from. The entire focus of our work is to create wines that epitomise
the character of our vineyards and we take the utmost care to ensure that you will be absolutely delighted with our champagnes.
